Actress, model, and beauty queen Sushmita Sen yesterday celebrated the completion of 24 years of being crowned with the Miss Universe title.
Reminiscing about her win the actress posted on Instagram, “I was 18 yrs old when #India won #MissUniverse for the very first time on 21st May 1994….I am 42 now, still a ‘Miss’ with a ‘Universe’ inside of me!!!!nothing has changed except the year’s. Thank you guys for the letters, cards & gifts ..but mostly for ‘Re-membering’ the #Universe is lovingly #abundant & so what we give out, we get more of!!! #positivity #happiness#kindness #love #empathy I celebrate with you #India & #philippines(my second home) #24years#missuniverse1994 here’s looking at you!!! I love you guys!!!! Mmmuuuaah!!”
After celebrating the special day the actress in a recent press conference shared her horrific experience when she caught a 15-year-old young boy touching her inappropriately at an award function gathering.
Talking about the incident the actress shared, “So many times people think we don’t encounter things like misbehavior because we have bodyguards. Let me tell, even with 10 bodyguards around, we are dealing with a crowd of 100 men who have often managed to misbehave with us. Six months ago at an award function, a 15-year old boy misbehaved with me as he thought I wouldn’t realize because of the crowd around. But, he was wrong. I grabbed his hand from my behind and I was shocked to see he was just 15.”

The actress further recalled, “I held him by his neck and took him for a walk. I told him if I make a hue and cry, his life would be over. He denied having misbehaved at first but I sternly told him to acknowledge. He realized his mistake, said sorry and promised me that it will never happen again. I didn’t take action against him because I understood that the 15-year-old was not taught that such things are an offense and not entertainment.”
Sushmita even emphasized on the fact that until and unless the rapists are awarded death sentences in our country, such offenders will never learn a lesson. We completely agree with Sushmita and are in awe of her for handling the situation with such maturity.
